Writer Kevin Sessums, who knows Ryan, posted on Facebook,
“Just heard from a mutual friend that he texted them from hospital so he’s doing well enough to make a bit of a joke – of course he would – but please keep him in your prayers. You don’t sustain three shots to the chest – if those reports are true – and just walk out of the hospital the next day. I am still in shock about it all.
If you pray, pray for his recovery.”
